CCG strives to foster dialogue through publications, forums and one-on-one discussions with a wide range of influencers. This book is meant to do just that – Dr. Huiyao Wang and Dr. Lu Miao have compiled this volume of original works by CEOs and senior business representatives to provide a balanced and diverse perspective that will provide Chinese officials with valuable insights and inspire business to make the most of China’s development.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic and geopolitical tensions, China continues to present many opportunities for multinationals while MNCs continue to play a key role in the Chinese economy. However, balancing domestic development, quality growth, and international standards often renders increased uncertainties for global businesses operating in an already complex regulatory environment.
Released nearly two years after the outbreak of COVID-19, Transition and Opportunity brings together an array of CEOs and senior executives from leading multinationals, leaders of foreign trade associations and representatives of advocacy groups on the ground in China to share their views on the potential and risks China holds for business as the world economy recovers.
The 22 entries in this book include contributions from the heads of Beijing-based chambers of commerce representing the EU, the US, France, Switzerland and Brazil and others, CEOs and senior executives of MNCs like Airbus, Royal DSM, Michelin, LinkedIn and Herbalife as well as representatives of global consulting firms like KPMG, PwC, Accenture and Roland Berger.
Divided into three parts – ‘The Big Picture,’ ‘Analysis and Advice,’ and ‘On the Ground’ – content progresses from looking at how countries balance their own interests with China’s for that elusive ‘win-win’ formula, to the role consultancies and advisors play in helping companies succeed, then looking at the experiences of individual companies to see how they have adapted and thrived in China.
